Only money sacred?

"LONDON - British mining giant Vedanta said Tuesday it is going ahead
with plans to mine a bauxite-rich hillside in Orissa considered sacred
land by local tribals, and urged two international NGOs to give up their
protest campaign.

"We are proceeding with the mining plans but there are still a few
permissions that need to be granted," Zoe Watt, a spokeswoman for
Vedanta Resources, told IANS after a high-profile protest at the Annual
General Meeting of shareholders in London Monday."
